Experienced bassist looking for pop rock dance band preferably with a female front person.
Hi, I'm Dave and I have recently become available as my band the Refranes had to break up due to various reasons (primarily the pregnancy of our lead singer & does not want toreturn) I've played in numerous bands for the last 30 years: The Urge, Mad Leroy, Leadfoot Johnny, Hogwild, The Cait Janes Band, Retrovention & the Refranes. We'd been together for 5 years playing venues around the Cincinnati area such as MVP's, Silverton Cafe, McLevy's Pub, Latitudes, Arlin's, KJs, Riverside Marina, Pirate's Den, Pirate's Cove, The Show, Putter's, Lebanon's 3rd Friday Festival, Goettafest, St Johns Festivals, St Margaret Marys Festivals, Nativity Festival, Crescent Springs Festivals, corporate events & weddings & we opened for the band, America at the Festival at Sycamore a couple summers ago. Since the break up, I've been keeping my chops up playing in a hard rock band, but I realize that to play the higher paying venues, festivals and corporate events, you have to play familiar, danceable, consumer-friendly material like the Refranes did. The Refranes song list contained a variety of tunes from artists like: Blink 182. Prince, Aretha. Billy Idol, Kelly Clarkson, Walk The Moon, Beatles, Adele, Wild Cherry, Labelle, Cheap Trick, Gloria Gaynor, Maroon 5, Black Crowes, Journey, Elle King, Guns and Roses, Tina Turner, Paramore, Michael Jackson, Sublime, Paramore, Bruno Mars, Zeppelin, Skynyrd, Jimmy Eat World, OneRepublic, The Ataris, No Doubt, The Doors, Pat Beneath, Etta James
